Refurb draws brands to Meadowhall

Published:  19 October, 2016

New signings and brand upsizes take centre stage at Meadowhall

British Land, joint owner of Meadowhall, has secured over 21,000 sq ft of new lettings and upsizes in the last three months. The deals come as the first phase of Meadowhall’s £60m refurbishment nears completion.

Womenswear brand Ghost London has taken a 900-sq ft unit on Park Lane for its second standalone store outside of London, and next door Hawes & Curtis is to make its regional debut also from a 900-sq ft store. The third addition to Park Lane is Nespresso with a kiosk that opens later this month

On Meadowhall’s High Street, JD Sports, is increasing its store size to 11,400 sq ft from 9,500 sq ft while Virgin Holidays is extending its interactive store concept on Meadowhall’s Arcade. And the Entertainer will be returning to Meadowhall’s retail line up with a new 4,700-sq ft store on The Arcade next to Virgin Holidays and opposite Laura Ashley

Pret A Manger is launching a new 2,300-sq ft café, its first at Meadowhall, and Coffika, a new coffee concept, will be making its UK debut with a 900-sq ft café on the Arcade.

Completing the additions is a hat-trick of openings in the Oasis Dining Quarter, with Barburrito, Wrapchic and Subway all making Meadowhall debuts. In addition, Australian tea specialist, T2, independent modern gourmet confectioner, Treat Kitchen, and candy store, Gobstoppers, have recently opened at the centre.

Richard Crowther, asset manager for British Land, said: “As we continue to increase Meadowhall’s choice and variety, the mass of new signings is testament to our status as the number one shopping destination in the region. Securing brands for their regional debuts further strengthens our offering, whilst Meadowhall’s strong performance is also reflected by a growing trend amongst existing retailers to upsize."

Meadowhall’s letting agents are CBRE, Smith Young and Davis Coffer Lyons. Cameron Scott acted for Ghost London and Hawes & Curtis. JLL represented Virgin Holidays. Reid Rose Gregory and Freeth Brasier acted for The Entertainer and Gobstoppers respectively. Harris Lamb acted for Wrapchic and Burley Browne for Barburrito.
